More for Mom

Do you have plans for Mother's Day yet? None here, but it has been so busy lately that I'm going to enjoy the down time. I am hoping it is nice enough to get some gardening done. My kids think we'll be looking for a new dog on Sunday. Our family pup of nearly 14 years passed away right after Christmas, so Campbell and Hadley have been lobbying for a new puppy and decided that they are getting me a dog for Mother's Day (every mother's dream, right?).

Anyway, on to today's card...
... perhaps it will serve as more inspiration for you if you are still planning on making a card for mom.  When I made this card, I designed it for myself...lol. Yes, this would be my dream Mother's Day card... it has everything on it that I love...
... houndstooth...
... black & white elements...
... touches of pink...
... stitching...
... a tag...
... bling...
... kraft...
... roses...
... inking...
... and last (but not least) satin ribbon.

It just doesn't get any better than that for me. So when my initial version of this card (actually a tag) was not picked up for the May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine, I reworked it into what you see today and it now is in the pages of Card Creations Volume 9 which has recently hit news stands.

Have a nice Saturday!

I'm actually really surprised the tag wasn't picked up- it alone was beautiful- but the addition of the extra 'you' elements is so lovely!
Good luck with the dog- it IS every mother's dream gift! ha!! :)

This is beautiful, Windy! I would have no idea how to incorporate all those elements on one card but you make it look effortless. I'm looking forward to seeing you as one of the new Go-To Gals.

Just wanted to say thank you for your sweet comment on the Moxie Fabber post! It means so much to me. Hope you're having a wonderful mother's day!
